Creating Stencils

Did you know you can create your own stencils using Stampin' Up punches?!  It is very simple to do and the result is gorgeous!!  The following is a card we did at my monthly "technique" class using Stampin' Up's Ornament Punch from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I just loved how it turned out and know I will be using this technique in the future.

Stamp Sets:  SU! Holiday Best (Level 1 Hostess Set - 115364)
Paper:  SU! Always Artichoke Cardstock (105119), SU! Whisper White Cardstock (100730), SU! Brushed Silver Cardstock (100712), SU! Ruby Red Cardstock (102030)
Inks:  SU! Sahara Sand Classic Ink (105208), SU! Always Artichoke Classic Ink (105219), SU! Ruby Red Stampin' Write Marker (102259)
Accessories:  SU! Whisper White Organza Ribbon (114319)
Tools:  Big Shot Die-Cut Machine (113439), SU! Textured Impressions Folder Petal-A-Plenty (116824)
Create a Stencil Technique Instructions:  
1.  Punch window sheet to create stencil shape.  Cardstock will work just as well if you don't have a window sheet.
2.  Label "front side" so inked side is not placed on cardstock.
3.  Hold stencil in place and sponge ink through stencil.

Below is an awesome video created by another Stampin' Up demonstrator using this technique.  Enjoy!

Thank You Cards

WOW!  It seems like forever since I have blogged!  Life has just gotten so busy and I had put my creativity to the side! But no more...I have missed getting creative!  To get back into the swing of things, I decided to begin with a simple Thanksgiving card that can be given to that special person to show how thankful you are for all that they do.  Here are a few cards I put together using the same design but changed the sentiment around a bit.  I just absolutely love the Medallion set which is Stampin' Up's number one selling stamp right now!

Stamp Sets:  SU! Medallion (115223), SU! For All You Do (115360)
Paper:  SU! Confetti Cream Cardstock (102835), SU! Chocolate Chip Cardstock  (102128)
Ink:  SU! Crushed Curry Classic Ink Pad (115659), SU Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad (100908)
Accessories: SU! Dusty Durango 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (115609), SU! Medium Very Vanilla Envelopes (107300), Brad
